The CP4 STAGE from Yamaha is a digital stage piano that features a selection of sounds (voices) from Yamaha's hand-crafted grand pianos, including the CFX, CFIIIS and S6. Also included are well-known vintage EPs (electric pianos) with VCM effects, the piano sounds of the venerable DX series of digital synthesizers, and a variety of sounds based around the company's flagship MOTIF synthesizer. All of this has been matched with an 88-note, wooden-key Graded Hammer action keyboard that provides the authentic piano touch and response. Additionally, the lightweight design combines portability with elegant style.
Yamaha's GH3 keyboard has three sensors: in addition to two sensors to detect keystroke strength, it includes a Damper Sensor that enables the playing of the same note repeatedly with perfect articulation. This also blends sounds without the use of the damper pedal. Voice Category buttons facilitate calling up sounds quickly and easily with favorites storable for each category. Large lighted buttons make it easy to split and layer sounds even on the darkest stage, making it simple to switch from a full piano, to a piano layered with strings, or with a split bass sound. A single button press returns the piano sound to the entire keyboard.
